Description: This is about my best friend. We did everything together and went everywhere with each other. We almost never had a day where we didn't talk four different times on the phone about absalutely nothing and never went a weekend with out being at each other's house. But this year we barely talk. I got a boyfriend and now we are engaged. I'm 18 and still young. But I now have to be an adult and Miles is still a kid. Not that I'm not loving the excitment of getting ready to get married. But I never see her and we never hang out. She has another group of friends that have time for her and because I don't our friendship is hanging high. We will always be there when the other one needs someone. But right now it seems like we are far away. I miss her.
unreality of my youth -------------------------------------------
Time is slipping I think
It seems so long ago
That I spent every spare moment
we never went anywhere
with out the other by our side
inseparable we were
I found someone to love me
In a way I never thought
I grew up faster
I have responsibilities
That you donít need to deal with yet
Itís hard seeing you staying young and I
growing slightly older
on different plains
it seems we canít connect
itís so heart wrenching
not to have you by me
I call and your not home
Your out or want to be alone
You never call
And Iím never there
Where has time gone
Has it slipped into the unreal?
To the reality that is no longer?
I knew this day would come
Our lives making room for others
And many changes
But I didnít see it coming so soon
My youth I fear is going fast
But I hope I never lose spirit
I wish you were here
But your not
Our lives have changed
For the better I know
But Iíll miss you
I miss you already
I[m sorry to say this right off, but you really need defined sentences, I kept flowing them together, and had to re-read several of them.
Aside from that, this was good. It felt like you were already reminiscent, rather than traumatized, I liked that. It wasn't a big, woe is me, but more like you were sincerely telling this to your friend, but almost hollow from the experience.
I can't say I know your experience, but I think I can see things relatively clearly from your friend's perspective, although I can't say for certian, since I am not your friend. I can honestly say that she probably misses you as much as you miss her, or more, since she may feel abandoned, but also probably feels like an intruder when she's around. She probably feels like you are happy without her, and that she should leave you to your bliss.I know, I've hada few friendships strained by standing aside to support what I thought to be their happiness.
I think that you should probably show this poem to your friend, or even better, just sit down and talk about it for a while. It's better to have it resolved one way or the other, rather than dragging out a dying farce of comradery. If the two of you are honest, your friendship will either strengthen, or die, but there won't be any more questions as to its state. I know that having a friendship end is painful, but having to live with the question of weather it is still there is harder by far. Salaam, and may you find your happy ending.
Aww, this often happens. the good thing is that you still want the friendship and want it to continue. Sometimes that isn't case we just let it die. But life tends to separate us. we go down our own paths. if this friendship mean a lot to you, you should really try to hook up. all the best.
A strained friendship is always hard to mend and the ending of it hard to acpet. I think you laid yourself bare with your feelings and intent. It's up to your friend now. I would show her this poem. I've been the friend who moved on when one friend gets a man. She might feel she is inthe way, or uncomfortable if she is single. She may think you have changed. i'm not saying this is all your fault, but try to see where she could be coming from first. And maybe she outgrew your friendship and has not said so yet. You will never know, til you two sit and have a honest talk with the intent to not bash eachother. But state your needs from eachother. I hope all this works out for you. You wrote a very good poem.
I just went through this A great friend of mine But we went our seperate ways She isn't moving in a good direction and I'm getting new responcibilities and now when we see eachother I know it's just politeness that makes her smile at me and wave and I know it's just the fact that I love her that I return it. Great write.
Well, there is definitly emotion put into this. Personally, I thought you could've put a bit more into it, but it's still good.
Time always gets the best of everyone of us... if there was only more of it. I've been in the same position as you, and I know how hard it is to watch someone grow away from you... become independent from you. It's hard to deal with.
The sun always rises, so keep hanging on... things will look up sooner or later :) Good write.
